President elect Donald Trump announced his administration's plan to make America great again. He started with whether it is producing steel, building cars, curing diseases.etc, etc....comment: for the sake of America, I hope his plans succeed.
This simple blog will summarize what I remember from 1960 to present. For the sake of discussion let us let US represent the West and China the East and Israel (the time of KIng David) the Bible.
What makes a nation great ? Let us look at the three US, China, and Israel. Hard work including research and development appear to be the most evident common formula of success. But Israel's success is based on blessing of God on King David.After King David's rule, it appears Israel's love for God slowly diminished eventualy resulting in Israel's capture and exile to Babylon and dispersion of the Jews to other nations and later regathering of Israel in 1948 to present.
Does God have a role in success or fall of a nation ? I believe so look at Israel, look at America. How about China ? Just as Babylon was used by God to discipline His people Israel , could China be used by God to discipline His people who forgets about God ?
As a Christian, I believe every one's hope is in Jesus Christ, so is every nation.
Psalm 33:12 says Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD.
